Even when innocent, an arrest may create lasting problems

Pretty much everyone has seen mugshots used outside of a police station. It only takes a trip to the gas station or grocery store to see a tabloid with a less-than-glamorous photo of a celebrity at their lowest on the front of a tabloid. Mugshots capture the moment of arrest, but they don’t go away after the fact. Just like the dejected celebrity mugshots, anyone who has been arrested has a mugshot that may come back to haunt them.

What to expect during the arrest process

An arrest is a serious issue and can impact the rest of your life in many ways. The arrest process can be overwhelming, especially if you have never been arrested before. The police are required to follow certain legal procedures when they arrest someone.
